, former state department director, will be here to discuss john kerry's appointment to the secretary of state and what he means to obama foreign policy. we will be talking to a man who put the fate of the keystone pipeline and the fate of the president's hands. we have dave heineman with his approval to give president obama a second chance. we begin with the obama party is campaign to ban assault weapons. they not only want to ban assault weapons but certain handouts. for more on what the democrats are trying to do to our second amendment rights, we bring in shannon bream. reporter: senator dianne feinstein acknowledges that it will be an uphill battle. this new measure would ban the sale and manufacture and transfer and importation of 157 specific garments, along with a broader group of other guns that will meet at a lower threshold for being classified as an assault weapon is the sale and transfer and gifting of anything classified as an assault weapon. >> no weapon is taken from anyone. the purpose is to try up the supply of these weapons over time. therefore there is no sunset on
government leaders the nation needs stricter gun control laws. john henrehan spoke with both sides. >> reporter: they marched on constitution avenue from the grounds of the u.s. capitol to the grounds of the monument, carrying signs, de crying the power of the national rifle association. some carried signs with the names of individual victims of gun violence. other signs asked the country to remember the massacre in newtown, connecticut. a small contingent from that community joined on stage. the crowd appeared to be about 3,000 strong. organizers warned the fight for more gun control legislation would be a tough one, but -- >> look at all the changes people said couldn't happen. civil rights, women's rights, don't ask don't tell. sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. change will happen when we work for it as a country. >> let us come together from across in nation, reinstate the assault weapons ban.

conference, john. >> the bill protects hunters and sportsmen by protecting 2200 specifically named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes. they are by make and model exempted from the legislation. when we did this bill in '93, there were 375. today, there are 2,200. >> reporter: so do the exemptions make any difference with the national rifle association? >> senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns for decades. it's disappointing but not surprising she is focused on occur tailing the constitution instead of fixing our broken mental health system. gun bans do not work and we're confident that congress will reject her wrong headed approach. action resuming next week in the senate on guns, john. >> is senator feinstein put on a big show. there was big drama. does this have any chance of getting passed? >> reporter: very difficult chance. it will be a tough road ahead. it's not because of republicans in this case. it's because of democrats. remember, in the senate there are a lot of democrats from red states. some of them up for re-election next year, john. not sure whether they're
get all the answers. i was hanging on every word you were saying, john. i happened to glance at my apps, here's a bbc news reports. -- report. it says the u.n. says numbers of syrian refugees arriving in jordan putting a considerable strain on the resources. the u.n. h.c.r. said that more than 26,500 refugees have crossed into jordan since january 1. officials said up to 3,000 were arriving every day and 50,000 were waiting to cross. that happens to be the camp that we visited. that happens to be the camp where just a few days before there was a very bad storm and these tents were blown down and there was riots and demonstrations and anger and frustration. and the belief that we're not helping them. the anger that we felt when a young woman who is a teacher said this next generation of children will take revenge on those that did not help them. we are sowing the wind in syria, we're going to reap the whirlwind that whirlwind will be the increase of -- increased presence of al qaeda and islamist groups which are now flooding into syria, as you know. 60,000 dead and counting and the

, and they will probably present that plan this week. we'll be talking to senator john mccain, senator bob menendez. they're working together on this plan. whether president obama detracts from the plan by going out on the road, going to nevada on tuesday, we're going to ask him about that, as well. >> interesting theory by just being associated with the plan it could drive some people away from the plan in congress. complicated dynamic. let's talk about this extraordinary interview, the joint interview, the first time it's happened with president obama and hillary clinton sitting down talking to "60 minutes." the whole thing airs tonight. i wonder is there talk in washington this isn't in some ways president obama picking favorites in the race to replace him in 2016 because joe biden is also talking about maybe running. >> reporter: that's right, and, you know, joe biden isn't sitting right next to the president in that interview. i don't think president obama has ever done an interview sitting next to anybody but his wife. so you bet there's a lot of talk about that, and we'll talk to our powerhouse ro
, this appears to be the very first time senator john mccain has signed onto one of the president's legislative priorities, and you may be surprised to learn that republicans have made this sudden shift from previous immigration proposals such as herman cain's electrified fence and mitt romney's stance of self-deportation. after all, it wasn't even a year ago that congressman steve king of iowa compared america's immigrant selection process to that of picking out a dog. >> pick the one that's the friskiest, the one that's engaged the most, and not the one that's over there sleeping in the corner. you get the pick of the litter, and yourself a pretty good bird dog. we got the pick of every darn civilization on the planet. >> right, pick work dogs, not lazy dogs from those donor countries. congressman king said later his remarks were meant as a compliment. charming. so there has been an evolution by the republican party and it's not because rick perry accused anyone of not having a heart. senator mccain, how about some of that famous straight talk? >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at

for director. not all of his nominees are encountering such opposition, senator john kerry received bipartisan support at his confirmation hearing on thursday. >> the airplane, the one that says on the side, united states of america, lands anywhere in the world, i will be proud that it will be john kerry representing us. >> should he be confirmed, i'm confident he will be, and become our next secretary of state. i'm sure we'll have our disagreements which i know neither one of us will hesitate to bring to the other's attention. >> ever since key new york democratic senator chuck schumer softened his stance on former nebraska senator chuck hagel, president obama's nominee for defense secretary, hagel has been able to slowly grow a little more support in the senate ahead of his confirmation hearing and now though, some senators are raising questions about deputy national security advisor john brennan's chances of becoming cia director since at least one democratic senator has an issue with mr. brennan's role in the government, targeting americans that we thought were involved in terrorism, such
. and in a way that's a good exclamation point to my testimony. >> in 1971, before he was senator john kerry, navy lieutenant john kerry appeared before the senate foreign relations committee, the same committee he sat before today, to talk about the war he had just returned from, which was the vietnam war. john kerry famously protested against that war. and now the people who are protesting against the current war and maybe the future ones are protesting at his hearing, at his confirmation. and everybody else rolls their eyes and laughs at it but he looked at her instead and said essentially, hey, that was me. full circle. >>> the huffington post headline >>> the huffington post headline today on what happened in congress was "failibuster." >>> the huffington post headline today on what happened in congress was "failibuster." fail, as in bummer. over a talking points memo it was "there won't be reform, it's just re-norm." wa, wa. sad trombone. if you need to feel better, if you need to feel better about politics in particular, you will need to feel better after we get through the details of
